Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
OK I am one of these reviewers that read reviews and make changes...not giving the original recipe a chance unless people state that it is truly exceptional the way it is. I did cook the chicken the way the recipe stated. It was really moist and filled with good flavor (although I didn't truly measure out the added seasonings) The changes I made were to the wine sauce. My husband requested a white wine sauce dinner which I have never really attempted. I made the wine sauce with the following: fresh garlic (2 cloves sliced) 1 1/2 cup of chardonnay 1 1/2 tbs. butter 2 tbs cream of chicken and Wondra to thicken. It was really good, although I do think that chardonnay (Bare Foot) was a bit on the sweet side. Without the cream of chicken, this would be a great sauce over a shrimp and asparagus over angel hair pasta dish. Anyway, thank you to the reviewers...you are always a great help to making a successfully meal...even my 14 month old loved the chicken (no sauce included of course).

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
My husband and I just finished this meal and was very happy that we both went for seconds. I made a 3 lb. loin so I add a bit more of the steak rub seasoning and the balsamic. As other reviewers recommended, I added vegetables (carrots and yellow onion) and minced garlic. The flavor was very good but the steak marinade I used (Montreal Steak Seasoning) had quite a bite to it. After, I took the pork and plated it to cool, and put the marinade in a small pot on low heat with Wondera and made a fantastic marinade...although when we cut the pork, it was so moist it didn't need it. Great dinner, very happy with it and will definitely make it again, playing around with it...maybe adding honey as others suggested. Thanks for this great recipe, I am not a "big" meat eater, but I will definitely make it again!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I tried this recipe last week and it was a great hit for Football Sunday. The one flavor that stuck out was the apple cider vinegar...so I would cut it back a little but it was still very good. Leftovers the next day thicken up better than the day it was served. Great recipe, will definitely use this one again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I only made the meatballs so thats all I can rate. I really enjoyed this recipe because it is similar to my mothers recipe. Although a bit bland, it is a great way to start with a meatball and using it again and adding the flavors that suit you. I followed the recipe "to a T" and thought that the meatballs could use a bit more doctoring up. The second time I made this I added 1/4 tsp. garlic to the original recipe, use the three meat combo traditional to Italian meatballs, more parmesan cheese and 1/8 tsp. of water so that the meat wouldn't dry out. Today I am going to try the sauce portion of this recipe. Thank you Jeremy for sharing this recipe!!!

Cream Cheese, Garlic, and Chive Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
I made this recipe as something quick for tonights dinner. I read the reviews, however, decided to follow the exact recipe. I feel as though there was only a slight flavor to the inside mixture. The chicken was juicy, but overall the recipe was bland. I wil definitely try this recipe again, adding some bread crumbs, maybe cooked bacon in small pieces and coat the chicken before.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I made this tonight and I took some other reviewers suggestions. I switched the amount of wine in the recipe with the amount of milk (I used 1%). I browned the pork chops in bread crumbs, garlic and pepper for five minutes on each side. I then cooked the pork chops at 350 for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes I added asparagus and the sauce mixture. I then cooked it for 30 minutes. The pork came out perfect and was very moist. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It is a very easy recipe and I will definitely make this again. Thank you!

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I usually do not rate recipes on this site but I had to for this one. Let me begin by saying that I am not a baker. With this recipe, completed with no changes, it was delicious. I will definitely make it again.

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Love, love, love this recipe. It is a bit of work because of the constant whisking as you slowly add the milk (but it gives it the great thickness you want in baked potato soup). Husband and I used 1% milk, low fat sour cream and it did not alter the taste at all. We also didn't have bacon. Love it and will make over and over. Thanks for sharing!

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I decided to rate this recipe on the way that it was written. i gave it four stars because my guests and I both believed there was to much garlic (over powered the lemon) and cheese. The second time I made this I used less cream cheese (approx. a small cut into a bar of cream cheese for each piece of chicken). I also used less cheddar per piece (I used sharp cheddar). The garlic I love, but I know that others may not like the strong taste that over powered the lemon. So I cut down on the garlic a bit. This recipe is very easy to make. I will definitely make it again.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Making this on a short notice of visitors coming, I bought baked potatoes from a local fast food joint. I followed the recipe but cut back on the bacon...I let my guests put the amount they wanted in. I cooked the bacon separately and didn't use the grease in the soup (I know people enjoy it, but I did have a guest that doesn;t eat meat over). Great soup!!!! Definitely a staple for my winter nights. Thank you!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I have tried this recipe twice. The first time I had not much success because of the time for baking the potatoes. The second time they turned out great. I combined cheese, green onion, sour cream, milk, garlic, salt and pepper. Five minutes before serving I sprinkled extra cheese and a small amount of paprika before serving and broiled them. This gave the potatoes great coloring and the melted cheese was yummy! Will definitely be used for company with many of my future meals. Thank you!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
My husband and I made this for guests lastnight. We used the mixture on 2 chickens (5lb. each). We coated the chicken and then let it marinate in the refrigerator for two hours. We used the rotisserie oven and cooked it for 1 hr and 35 minutes. it was so juicy. We didn't get the "fall of the bone" effect but our guests really enjoyed it. Great recipe!!!!

Chicken Penne Italiano

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
This was ok. I tried to take the advice of others and added a bit of crushed red pepper but it still tasted bland. It is a simple recipe that I would recommend to someone just starting off, but other than that I wouldn't make this recipe again.

This recipe is a staple for us. We love to serrve it for parties and football. To make it a bit health: boneless chicken breasts cut into cubes place into mixture of flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and pepper. Place chicken in a colander and a bowl below,pour mixture over the chicken, cover and shake. Bake the coated chicken in a sprayed cooking pan for twenty minutes. After coat the chicken with the sauce and return to the oven for 15 minutes.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
This is one of my favorite salads. I don't use the paprika because I never have any but without it, it's great! Definitely a staple in my house!

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
Let me start by saying that I have introduced this sandwich to a lot of friends and they have become big fans of it. I tweak the recipe a bit: Slice tomato and place in bowl with the balsamic vinegar (no olive oil needed) while they are marinating I toast my bread and make the mayo mix. After I put the mayo mix on both slices of toasted bread, put the marinated tomatos on one slice, top with some parmesan and bake it for 3- 5 minutes. Add the top slice of toast and viola. Drizzle some balsamic vinagrette, top with other slice of toast and its ready to eat.

Joy's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
I really like the combination of the flavors when I bit into each piece. My boyfriend and I love anything to do with taco meat so we were both pleased with this...I guess next time I should make it for a party even though I can eat the whole thing on my own.
